I recently got Zooey Deschanel-style bangs on a whim. For someone with thick, wavy hair like me, this is the beauty equivalent of adopting a puppy on impulse, or getting tattooed while on a bender. Like bringing home a new baby, the first few weeks with bangs were rough, but Aveda's Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade has made the adjustment period a little easier.
I'm not sure what sorcery is behind this stuff, but it's dynamite at controlling flyaways, keeping frizz at bay, and giving my bangs a little bit of weight. Just heat a dime-sized amount between your hands and run it through your hair, wet or dry, before or after styling. While I haven't tested it against the humidity of Philly's summer months, I have high hopes for next year. And if all else fails—well, that's why bobby pins exist.
